Publiseer Partners Caketunes to Distribute African Music Online
Caketunes is an online music platform allowing African artists and producers to share and distribute sounds. The startup was founded in 2017 and already has quite some contents.
Based on the partnership, Publiseer will distribute audio contents uploaded to Caketunes. Using an array of partnerships with established platforms like iTunes, Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora and Amazon Music, the startup can easily publish contents to a global audience.
We completely believe in taking chances. Seeing Publiseer launched last year was the best story ever. We had always known that we’d definitely do business together some day and here after a short while, we are coming together to simplify the process of uploading music across all music streaming platforms and stores. — Ability Elijah, co-founder of Caketunes
Elijah added that, “unlike other platforms, Publiseer does not charge musicians to distribute their songs. They probably must have studied the market and finally decided to take the free route, which was actually what caught our interest. These guys understand their market.”
The co-founder of Publiseer, Chidi Nwaogu, addded that:
Caketunes is a welcome development to African producers and musicians seeking ways to sell their creatives. Our partnership will see hundreds of African musical contents distributed worldwide, if not thousands.
Publiseer has also been looking to change the way Nigerians get their music and how creatives earn from their work. As a result, the partnership with Caketunes is a huge win-win.
Publiseer has some plans for the Nigerian music industry. And according to the Nwaogu, the start-up already has concrete plans in place. Interestingly, the digital publisher is working to distribute music physically as CDs across the country. Nwaogu says this will be rolled out very soon.
